Garmin Index Smart Scale

Review Date 10/23/19

Let's be honest, tracking all those steps with a fitness wearable is nice. Seeing the benefits of all those steps when you take that step onto the scale is much nicer. Garmin's "smart scale with connected features" gives you a way to bring all those metrics -- weight, body mass index, body fat, skeletal muscle mass and more -- together. Pair up this WiFi and Bluetooth connect scale with the same app your Garmin fitness tracker uses and you've got all your fitness and body info right there in one place. Now get stepping.

What could happen if something went wrong

Gamin seems to do a good job with privacy and security. They meet our Minimum Security Standards and we like that they ask for consent to use your de-identified data for analytics and product improvement. It does send your weight, BMI, and other biometric data to an app on your phone. Although unlikely, if someone happened to get into the details of your app, they'd be able to see a whole bunch of metrics about your body you might not want to be seen.
